Shaker card

Today I would like to share a project
inspired by Nichol Magouirk
in my next AECP course - Seasonal Scene Building.
I prepared a rectangle piece of white cardstock for the background,
die cut a black frame and a panel of transparent foil. 
Then I added the distress ink using my foam tool. I also covered a part of the background with a circle to create the moon.
I stamped the pheasant, the bird's footprints and the bushes in black,
and the sentiment 'All good things are wild and free' on the transparency. 
After that I stamped the bird's footprints and the dots in white
on the black frame to create the scene.
Finally, I used a few layers of thick cardstock to build up the shaker.
I put confetti and two red and two blue tiny die-cut hearts inside
and finished the shaker.

I enjoyed making this first-in-my-life shaker card.
Thank you Nichol for your tutorial.
